Why did you buy them if they sounded horrid? Something is not adding up here. Why purchase a speaker that sounds bad in hopes that break-in will make it sound better? It could have ended up sounding worse.
Your powers of addition are very poor. As I explained elsewhere in this post I had heard several of these speakers that were broken in and they sounded terrific. The distributor explained clearly that they would need 40 to 100 hours until they started to sound good. This was exactly what happened and they remained my reference speakers for many years. Does it add up now for you?
At the time the Gallo Reference 3s were introduced, the vibe (from reviewers who heard them broken in) was pretty much a uniform rave. Beginning with 6moons and The Absolute Sound. At the same time, early adopters who actually read their owners manuals (horrors!) noted the break-in requirements (100 hours). It seemed to me, and I guess to others, a small price to pay. But as noted, if you didn't read (or get) the word, you may have dumped yours midway in the break-in period.
